excellent, professional lawyer
Daniel is a great lawyer. He is very professional, clever, engaged and extremely responsive. That's what you want from a lawyer. He is really on your side, great listener and has tremendous patience and talent in explaining his legal advice so that non-experts can understand it. He will always be on top of deadlines and knows how to expertly deal with all the parties involved. I've dealt with several lawyers in the past, and Daniel has consistently been the best. Highly recommend him.

Daniel was our attorney for the purchase of our first home this summer and though we were daunted by this major life step, he helped us navigate the process from start to finish with ease. Daniel was amazing to work with as he was easy to reach and very prompt with his responses. He was extremely thorough with explaining all details of our contract so that my husband and I had a clear understanding of important timelines and everything we were agreeing too. Daniel kept us updated consistently throughout our closing period and stayed in contact with our realtor, mortgage lender, and sellers team to make sure everyone was on the same page and in clear communication. Most importantly, Daniel was kind, professional, knowledgable and attentive to our questions and needs. You can tell he is passionate about his work and cares deeply for his clients. Thank you Daniel!

Hard work attorney geared towards outstanding results!
Daniel is an excellent attorney with great attention to detail. As an advocate for your cause I could think of no one better to have arguing for you in the well of the courtroom. I have recommended numerous individuals to Daniel and all have been satisfied with his zealous advocacy and stellar representation. As an attorney myself, I regularly consult with Daniel on matters that are outside of my practice area. Recommended to the fullest.

Mr. Poterek
2018 was a very difficult year for me, as I faced numerous situations that required me to retain an attorney. Luckily, I had Mr. Daniel Poterek by my side each step of the way. He helped me navigate an employment case, a personal injury/property damage claim, and a real property dispute. Mr. Poterek revolved all of the legal matters to my complete satisfaction. He was patient, informative, compassionate, and an all- around great advocate. I will surely hire Daniel for all of my future legal needs. I highly recommend any person in need of an attorney to contact Mr. Poterek for a consultation.

A Fighter Above and Beyond
Daniel represented me for two separate cases; the first was to handle a very complex, bifurcated post-judgment family law case. Some lawyers I contacted said they don't do post judgement cases, due to what I assume is the complicated nature of the work required to untangle the issues overlooked in the initial divorce agreement which was handled by a different lawyer. Some other lawyers I consulted didn't fight for me, but rather seemed more interested in getting me to settle and compromise on an issue that was non-negotiable (my child's health). Daniel and the Burton Firm did what other lawyers didn't seem eager to do----to fight for the merits of my case and resolve and clean up the issues left ignored by the other lawyer who handled my divorce agreement. Daniel and the rest of the Burton Team did so with resounding success. For the more recent case, Daniel was instrumental in fighting for me over another family law matter. He worked tirelessly, working day and after hours into the night. He was very patient and professional with me, taking care of various aspects of the case, before during and after the hearing: he wrote carefully, expertly worded court documents that cut right to the issue; He took a great deal of time preparing me for the court hearing, with calm detailed instructions for me to follow. The judge ruled in my favor on every single point argued in court and in the filed motions. The court hearing couldn't have turned out any better; it even surpassed my expectations and I attribute that to Daniel's expertise, his calm, committed work ethic, his utmost professionalism, and his sincere, unwavering hard work in fighting for me. I cannot express strongly enough how impressed I am with Mr. Poterek and the Burton Firm. He went above and beyond his duties to fight for me and to get things done right. I have consulted with many lawyers and have found Daniel to be the one I recommend most. When it comes to legal representation you need a fighter. Daniel will not stop until the job gets done right, fighting every step of the way. Maybe other lawyers will do that, but he does it with results. I won both cases, and I am forever grateful to Mr. Poterek.

Responsive, Knowledgeable and Professional.
Daniel assisted me with reviewing and editing a prenuptial agreement. He was timely in his work, explained all of the sections, and answered all of my questions quickly and insured that I understood the meaning of the technical language. I would both recommend him, as well as consult with him if I needed representation in the future.

Real Estate Dispute
Daniel represented me in a landlord tenant dispute in July 2017. Immediately upon hire Daniel made me feel at ease with the entire situation and was very prompt in answering any questions I had. He resolved my case to my complete satisfaction and will definitely be my choice for representation if necessary in the future.
